Characterization of MSCmix and NCSCmix isolated from the bone marrow of adult Wnt1-CRE/R26R-LacZ mice. After recombination, NCSCs from Wnt1-CRE/R26R-LacZ mice express LacZ gene. MSCs did not undergo Cre/Lox recombination and conserved the PGK-Neo cassette (a). MSCmix are adherent fibroblast-like cells, do not express β-galactosidase (b) or Sox2 c (red), slightly express Nestin (c) (green), p75NTR (d) (red), and Sca-1 (d) (green). NCSCmix have a similar morphology, express β-galactosidase (e), Nestin (f) (green), Sox2 (f) (red) and p75NTR (g) red), but not Sca-1(g) (green). Scale bar = 20 μm. MSC mesenchymal stem cell, NCSC neural crest stem cell
